Juan Sebastián Muñoz (born 4 January 1993) is a Colombian professional golfer. He graduated from high school at Colegio San Carlos in Bogotá in 2011.
Muñoz played college golf at the University of North Texas where he won two tournaments his senior year including the Conference USA Championship.
Muñoz turned professional in 2015 and played on the PGA Tour Latinoamérica’s Developmental Series where he won two tournaments. His finish on the Series earned him exempt status on the first half of the 2016 PGA Tour Latinoamérica season. However, in February 2016, playing on a sponsor invitation, Muñoz won the Club Colombia Championship on the Web.com Tour. This victory, coming in his hometown of Bogotá, earned him a Web.com Tour card and was the first win by a Colombian golfer on the Web.com Tour. He finished 22nd in the regular season money list, which earned him a PGA Tour card for the 2017 season.
Muñoz’s best finish in 2017 was a T-3 in the Greenbrier Classic in July. He fired a “stunning” 61 in the 1st round to take a two shot lead. He followed with rounds of 67 and 68 to maintain the solo lead. He shot a disappointing 72 in the fourth round, however, to lose to Xander Schauffele. This was Muñoz’s only top 10 of the year and he failed to maintain his PGA Tour card.
In 2018, Muñoz played well on the Web.com Tour, with two 2nd-place finishes and a 3rd-place finish, to end up 12th on the money list and earn a promotion to the PGA Tour again.
On 22 September 2019, Muñoz won his first PGA Tour tournament, winning the Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, Mississippi. Muñoz won in a playoff over Im Sung-jae. Source
